If you're going to Saturnia, it's important to know that there are four different facilities here: First, there's a very high-end and beautiful hotel that has its own hot spring pools for use by hotel guests only. Next, there's an adjacent but separate public pool area - it's a private park that you pay admission to enter. The last of the water areas is a free-use public natural soaking area where the hot water coming from the hotel area enters a nearby river. And finally, there's a spa with all types of massage and beauty treatments available.

I recently went to the public park pool area and spa. The pools are quite enjoyable - the water is extremely soft and the different pools and waterfalls are fun to explore. Entry cost was 22 euros. It was very family oriented and many people brought picnic lunches and made a day of it. I was a bit confused about the lounge chair situation, but I think you have to pay extra for them.

I also went for a massage at the spa - this facility is separate from the others and you pay to use them at different places. The massage was quite expensive compared to other massages I've received around the world and although the actual treatment was fine, there are absolutely no amenities provided - no towels, no robes, no footware. This is the first classy spa I've been to where you were expected to bring your own towels and robe. Furthermore, there was no place to shower or clean up in after the treatment - just a simple locker room to store your belongings. For the price, I expected to be pampered. I also kind of expected a soak in the hot waters before my massage to be included - neither was true.

I looked around the hotel a bit and it looked quite nice - maybe they provide robes to hotel guests!

Thoroughly enjoyed the Spas of Saturnia. Spent a couple of hours enjoying the therapeutic waters of the pools, and soaking up some sun after a 20-minute soak in the pool. Skin felt like silk afterwards. Just remember to take, or purchase, some bath wash for your shower afterwards. The water has a sulphur smell, but is not overwhelming.

Isn't marvelous to see the hot water pouring out from the earth constantly with power to massage you and running down through several naturally formed stone bowls?
I could not stop admiring it until I deeped into it to enjoy the heat and the calmness of the water. There a bar/restaurant nearby as well as ample parking.

There is the first time I pay a bit of money and remain happy!
Must try, even in spring or now in winter. You have the possibility to swim in a 40 degree lake when it's raining.. or when the sun is shining.. Please don't miss. Don't miss.

Go to the natural thermal springs which are free and full of locals. The waters were really clean and the waterfalls made a great massage when you sat underneath them. I would highly recommend these over the man made thermal spas
